Ok, Thanks Lee

I see this is still an active thread, that is good.

i am building a new machine and have tried to get an x-box 360 wireless controller for windows to work. The plug-in worked ok, but when I tried to config, it said I need "dotNetfx3.5". I downloaded and tried to install it, and it said it needed more programs and to connect the PC to the internet. i do not have internet or even a phone line in my shop, so i cannot easily do this.

This is a brand new windows 10 with all the latest updates done to it.

Short of me taking it all apart, and putting it all back together in the house, to download this program, only to take it all apart again to take it back out to the shop...... any ideas?

Basically, I cannot open the button setup screen(after hitting config in Mach), and currently the controller will only move the X axis (if I push 3 buttons at once, while holding my tongue in the right place), and even then, it only sometimes worked.

Thanks for any insite.

I might have just figured something out. The output signals refered to for the coolant ( #1-6) I thought were the pin #'s, but they are the output#'s... this makes more sense now. Still going to try to make a button......

Using a screen button is fine, and I don't use the coolant. But as I recall ( I am at work right now) the outputs for the coolant are only pins 1-6. I am using a zylotex board, and will have to see what outputs are availlable through that. I know I set up my relay system to pin14 because it was one that was availlable.

Thanks, but hat is way above me. Is there a "Buttons for Dummies" book availlable? I just tried reading the VB script manual on the Mach page, and I was lost in 2 sentances.

Thanks

I have tried to get infomation on how to use the outputs in Mach. I read the manual, but it does not explain them other than spindle control.
What I would like to do is use output 2 (pin 14) to turn on and off a laser crosshair, using the "L" button on the keyboard. I have a relay setup that will take care of everything after the BOB. Can someone please help with how to set that up.

Thanks in advance

Yes it is, it counts to 360, and then starts over. but DRO is in pos. numbers. How do i get it to be in negitive numbers?
